Why are we in trouble? Obaseki adduced a reason that it is because the country is enmeshed deeply in a financial quagmire. According to him, Nigeria’s oil marketers should not celebrate the increase in the price of crude oil, especially in the international market, for the expected benefits could be illusional. He noted that major oil companies in Nigeria such as Shell and Chevron are no longer investing in oil exploration.

In 2016, the party that succeeded the Peoples Democratic Party, that is the All Progressives Congress, and its leaders who had lied to Nigerians that there was no fuel subsidy in the country, but unconscionable theft, and that the Jonathan government was wrong, promptly increased fuel prices. They argued that a fuel subsidy regime was not sustainable: the same argument that they opposed in 2012

Obaseki, who made the revelation while addressing party faithful in Wards 8 and 10, Egor Local Government Area in continuation of his campaign, maintained that the battle over who wins the forthcoming election is between him (Obaseki) and Oshiomhole, and not the candidate of the APC, Osagie Ize-Iyamu.
